Decisions: by Salie Davis

I’ve come to a fork in the road

and I don’t know which way

is the right way to go.

I could go right but maybe right is wrong.

Maybe the right road

is the road that I’m on.

Or maybe I should just turn around

and the road that I’m on;

go back down.

Or maybe the right road is left

unless the left road is the road I just left.

What if the left road is wrong?

How many roads do I have left to go on?

Before I come to the end maybe

I should begin all over again.

Then when I come to the fork in the road,

stay there until I am old.

Neither turning right nor left.

Then I’ll neither be right nor wrong and there

I’ll be left at the end of life’s song.
